interested in how 19th-century American literature -- both elite and
popular -- interprets, critiques, forms and is formed by religious
culture. She holds degrees in Religion and the Arts (M.A.R., Yale
University, 2000) and English (B.A., ACU, 1996). She loves Emily
Dickinson, coffee, candles, and quiet.
